ThimphuTech was the first technology blog in Bhutan. We started writing it in 2009, just as broadband and mobile internet started to take off. (Although internet in Bhutan was launched in 1999, it was either super-slow or super-expensive, and was only used by a selected few).

In the blog, we wrote about technology and food, but also about plenty of other stuff. The blog became popular and influential in Bhutan. A companion bi-weekly column -- Ask Boaz -- was published for many years in the Kuensel, Bhutan's national newspaper. (The complete Kuensel columns are available as an ebook, Blogging with Dragons).

We stopped updating the blog when we left Bhutan in 2014, but the information within the posts can still prove useful, and thus we decided to keep it online.

We thank all our readers.
Tashi Delek,
Boaz & Galit.

Bloggers & Twitters, Unite!

Ms. Andrea Williams, Thimphu's local map maven, is organizing the Kingdom's first meetup of bloggers cum twitters. This will be an informal event, where people can - often for the first time - meet the real person behind the online persona. Business Bhutan is media-sponsoring the event. If you're interested in joining, here's the event's Facebook page.


  1. Boaz, are you coming? You have said 'May be' I hope your 'may be' means you are coming.

  2. @PaSsu, I too hope that the "May be" will magically transform into a "Yes", subject to resolving some minor logistical issues... Anyway, if we meet, coffee is on me, no arguments there!

  3. ha ha ha thanks for the coffee. I am already in Thimphu. I will come late but I am sure coming.

    I am happy you are going to answer lots of questions in K2 now on!


We love to hear from our readers!
